Diageo Global Travel has introduced an omni-channel pop-up for Johnnie Walker Blue Label at Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 3.
The activation, which Diageo GT claims is a first for Asia Pacific, invites passengers to experience the luxury universe of the iconic spirit.
A special event was hosted yesterday (30 June) by the Diageo GT team alongside partners from Changi Airport Group (CAG) and Lotte Duty Free to mark the official opening of the concept.
Travel shoppers can enjoy sampling at a bespoke bar and explore the product offer via a dedicated area, aided by LCD backwall displays and surround sound headphones.
A gifting station offers a bespoke gift-wrapping service and customised luggage tags.
Meanwhile, passengers at Changi Airport can pre-order the bottle on iShopChangi.com prior to departure.
Upon confirmation, they will be presented with the option to pickup the purchase at the iShopChangi Collection Centre.
Strengthening the pop-up is a media campaign running on digital screens in T3 arrivals and departures.
Effective since 30 June, this is designed to keep passengers updated of the new product offerings.
Teo Chew Hoon, Managing Director of Airside Concessions at CAG, said: “We are pleased to be the first in Asia Pacific to launch the new Johnnie Walker Blue Label experiential pop-up in Terminal 3, in collaboration with Diageo and Lotte Duty Free. In addition to a multi-sensory product discovery area at the pop-up, passengers can look forward to luxurious and bespoke services as they shop at Changi Airport.”
